A solar powered fountain is a great idea for smaller ponds because the movement of the water will help create oxygen for the fish and other aquatic animals that live there. They work great for adding a bit of decoration to your garden, and if you have a birdbath, it will make a great addition there as well.
Solar Fountain Pump Feature Review
The Solar Fountain Pump is a solar powered device, which means that it leaves a small footprint on the environment. It is designed to function without the use of any electricity or the use of batteries, so you will need to make sure that this fountain pump is positioned in a sunny location.
If it is even in partial shade, the pump will have difficulties circulating the water. That being said, if you have a garden pond in the middle of a sunny location, you will have no trouble keeping the fountain going.
The pump is designed to create several different water patterns. If you want a low spray, then the pump can be used without an attachment. This is a great option for a bird bath, but if you have a large pond or a fountain in your garden, then you may want to select one of the four attachments that come with the unit.
As the water squirts out of the fountain pump, it will move the device around the pool, especially when a higher shooting attachment is being used. If you want the device to stay in place, there are suction cups included that you can attach to the pump to keep it in a specific location in the pond. This is a good way to make sure that the water in the pond stays in the pond instead of being splashed onto the walkways.
The pump is a brushless pump, which means that as long as the solar panel is in the sunlight, the pump will have more than enough power to produce a strong stream of water, regardless of the fountain head that you are using. It also has the ability to start up quickly; in fact, as soon as the pump is in the water, it will be able to start functioning as it should. This unit can pump up to 40 gallons of water per hour, which is quite a bit for a pump of this size.
- 100 percent solar powered, which is a great way to save electricity.
- Easy to clean
- The attachments are great, especially if you want a few different effects in a garden fountain.
- It does not work very well on cloudy days.
- The spray of some attachments is difficult to contain in smaller fountains. You’ll have to test different attachments to get it right for your specific fountain.
As you can see, the Fountain Pump is not the perfect device, but it is a great option for a home garden. And not expensive at all. It has several different spraying options and it does not require electricity to function. Yes, it will have difficulties running on cloudy days, but most likely you will not be using it in the rain.
